Gallery: Cyclist and Beavertown Big Ride

Cyclist magazine
25 Oct 2019

A 100km spin throught the Essex and Hertfordshire lanes followed by a refreshing pint, perfect!

Cyclist recently partnered with master London beer brewers Beavertown to host the first Beavertown Big Ride. Basing ourselves at the Beavertown Brewery in Tottenham Hale, Cyclist was joined by 200 coffee, beer and bike enthusiasts who braved the bad weather for 100km of riding - designed by the Hub Velo crew - through the meandering byways and challenging roads of North London, Essex and Hertfordshire.

Coffee gurus Craving Coffee brewed up delicious cappuccinos and Americanos to provide a pre-ride caffeine kick while Gore kept us all dry with its Shakedry jackets. If you were feeling plush you could even splash out on a new bike from Ribble or Rose.

Snaking through the Epping Forrest, riders rolled their way beyond the M25 into the Essex countryside, diving down narrow lanes and technical singletracks to the quaint town of Ware, Hertfordshire, before working their way home again.

Once back, all riders were treated to a refreshing pint of Beavertown beer including crowd favourites Gamma Ray APA and Neck Oil Session IPA. Fun fact, Beavertown was created in 2011 by Logan Plant, son of Led Zepplin lead singer and diehard Wolverhampton Wanderers fan Robert Plant.

Cyclist and Beavertown will be joining forces again in 2020 to run more adventure rides throughout the year so make sure to check back for further details soon.

Until then, here’s a selection of photos from Josh Greet from the day.
